KUSD to host Building Trade Careers Summer Camp

KENOSHA, Wis. (Wednesday, July 19, 2023) – The Kenosha Unified School District is hosting a Building Trade Careers Summer Camp from July 24-27, 2023, for 30 students entering grades 7, 8 and 9 who are interested in learning about careers in the architecture and construction cluster.

The camp will expose students to a variety of career options while allowing them to participate in hands-on demonstrations and presentations. They also will have the opportunity to learn side by side with building trade employees from local companies. The camp will conclude with a visit to a local construction site where students will see in action what they will learn over the course of the week.

“Career-based learning activities like the Building Trade Careers Summer Camp allow students to explore careers and see firsthand what it’s like to work in various fields,” KUSD Coordinator of Career and Technical Education Aaron Williams said. “Students will use this experience to explore their interests and select KUSD classes that align with their desired career pathway.”

“We are grateful for industry partners who step up to provide these invaluable opportunities for our students,” KUSD Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Weiss said. “Supporting events of this caliber showcases their devotion to the growth and learning of the children in our community, both academically and socially.”
